Robert Edward, Cherokee Chief Running Bear, Arms

My name is Betty Osborne and I am researching my family genealogy. I am searching for info on Martha Seaberry Arms Osborne and her father, Robert Edward "Cherokee Chief Running Bear" Arms.

FYI, my GGGgf was George W. Osborne and his brother was Solomon "Sock" Osborne, both sons of Elias Osborne. Solomon Osborne's first wife was Martha Seaberry Arms. The info I have indicates Robert Chief Running Bear Arms and his family lived in the NC mountains where they border TN, along the Ocunaloftee River, until ca 1837. The family fled NC during the Trail of Tears era and lived a while in Tazwell, VA before settling in Clay Co, WV.

I saw a posting on this forum stating Seaberry was found in an Ashe Co, NC census ca 1840.

I would greatly appreciate info on Martha Seaberry Arms or her father, Robert James "Chief Running Bear" Arms.
